Wyandot Reservation map
Description: Hand drawn map of the Wyandot Reservation in the 19th century near Upper Sandusky, Ohio. The reservation has been blocked off in eight sections numbered with Roman numerals. On the map Wyandot is spelled 'Wyandott'. At the point where the IV, III, V, and VI sections meet is the town of Upper Sandusky. Wyandot natives originally lived in southern Canada, but before European settlement they were driven south by the Iroquois natives. They settled in what is now northern Ohio in Wyandot, Marion, and Crawford counties.The Wyandot tribe gave up their reservation in 1842 and they were moved to a reservation in Kansas the following year. They were the last Native American tribe to leave Ohio. View on Ohio Memory.
